. woodrow wilson says we have to realize the united states is a savior of the world. but madeleine albright as the secretary of state says we use force is because we are the united states of america we are the indispensable nation and we stand tall as cease-fire. capets something from a very profound the idea and the values of religion with the added security argue the application of organized violence because they often forget that fact. the non-westerners often do, so he says it is justifiable that we can have this policy towards iraq even though half a million children have died and clinton passes the laws that basically gives the opportunity for bush to go further after with the invasion of iraq so we see the continuum, that is a part of the point that we are making. it is and democrats versus republicans we see it with the lines running you can see 1846 with mexico but we are choosing from 1899 up through iraq and afghanistan and yemen. >> it is a way of life, so in some ways -- >> we're standing on the shoulders of a lot of great americans and it's not really the diversity offices. so

she pulled her name out of contention. >> madeleine albright said -- do you think it still had the sting for the president and if it did, what are the implications of that in relationship with the republicans? >> i think the president has much bigger fish to fry and fighting looming with the republicans and so i don't really think this becomes a lasting issue. i think that at the end of the day, the administration probably didn't think it was helpful to have a bruising nomination fight where benghazi and libya was going to be litigated day after day at some future point which would probably consume a lot of television and news time. and i think that if that wasn't the case, if we were just talking about some tough questioning, she wouldn't have withdrawn, the administration would have made it clear, you're not going to withdraw, we don't want that. but there are just to many priorities and tough political battles ahead and a sort of uncertain economy, this was something that probably both sides, but i do think the white house deemed as unnecessary. >> the whole thing started re

of state to madeleine albright. she was unanimously confirmed. politics being what they are, rice was compelled to put pen to paper removing herself for consideration for the top diplomatic job writing, the position of secretary of state should not be politicized. as a sitting u.s. national security official who served in two u.s. administrations, i am saddened we have reached this point before you decided whom to nominate. as qualified as she is for her work in foreign policy, this is one area where she may be wrong because, in fact, all positions are political and politicized. well before president obama had been reelected, the fight over his cabinet nominations began. the republican opposition to rice was led early and often by senator john mccain who claimed she was unqualified for job of secretary of state and not very bright. rice's sunday talk show round up after the september 11th attacks in benghazi, libya put her in front to provide information. as it turns out, she had not written the material she delivered that day and was not dishonest about her understanding of the a

and madeleine albright is a white man. this is the last white man to serve as secretary of state. look at him, warren christopher who stepped down in 1997 during bill clinton's second term. no woman or person of color led the defense or treasury departments. it was interesting to hear the name of american express ceo float this week. white house officials approached him for joining the president's nomination as treasury secretary. is the country's first black president facing an optics problem if the cabinet is white and male? since you read my mind on this, is it ironic or a sign of progress that we have a black president and we are asking the question of whether he needs to do the diversity thing or can he feel free to sort of make his cabinet his picks and not worry about the diversity? >> so far, susan rice was his pick, she's not. then i don't know, chuck hagel. really? the most qualify? i don't know he's making good choices. i would like to see a cabinet that reflects a lot of interesting, smart choices and reflects diversity of our country. i don't know. now, you know, patrick was talk
